The Role of Coherence in Emergent Behavior of Biological Systems


Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas are ellipsoidal clusters of excitable cells, in those clusters at physiological glucose concentrations a coherent electrical activity is generated, leading to a synchronized free intracellular calcium concentration dynamics. Studies based on Quantum Field Theory found sel-similarty in the spectral analysys. Other studies found that in interacting beta cells subclusters there exist a ‘functional coordination geography’ that goes well beyond the simple spatial pattern of cellular communication.

There exists a revised perspective of what is called ‘biocommunication’ through a scheme based on Quantum Field Theory “where molecules are able to perform in phase-correlated unison among them and with a self-produced electromagnetic field”.
